Imagine Architecture: Register now for 2022!

Carleton University's architecture school is looking forward to welcoming Imagine Architecture participants to campus this summer for three in-person labs — LAB 101, 102, and 103.

Following an overwhelmingly positive response to last year's online program, the Azrieli School of Architecture & Urbanism will also offer LAB 101 as an online option.

Imagine Architecture is a career exploratory studio for grade 10-12 students who are interested in design and who would like to gain experience in creative design thinking and making. Taught by instructors from Carleton’s architecture program, these fun and intensive workshops will introduce students to the creative culture of design studio, which is at the core of the Architectural Studies curriculum. The program aims to give students the tools they need to represent their creative ideas.

Here are the 2022 courses:

LAB 101 – July 4 to July 8 – On-Campus: Emphasis on human scale, multi-media drawing techniques, architectural conventions, and some physical modeling.

LAB 102 – July 11 to 15 — On-Campus: Emphasis on digital representation: Rhino 3D, Illustrator, Photoshop, and InDesign. Workshop on page layouts for portfolios.

LAB 103 – July 18 to 22 – On-Campus: Emphasis on diagrams and abstract architectural thinking, urban space, and portfolio preparation workshops.

LAB 101 — July 25-29 — Online:  Emphasis on human scale, multi-media drawing techniques, architectural conventions, and some physical modeling.

For those who want to explore a range of media and scales, Labs 101, 102, and 103 are designed as a sequence, to build skills and confidence, prepare students for application to undergraduate programs in architecture, and generate portfolio material.

For those who prefer to take only one LAB, each is designed independently and requires no previous training.

You can register for any one of them or you can register for all courses without repeating projects. Projects will allow the maximum exposure to creative design skills that will be helpful in creating a design portfolio.

Each on-campus LAB is $700 plus HST. For those interested in all three LABs, there is a $125 discount.

The online LAB is $625 plus HST.

Details and registration:

NOTE: While we plan to provide on-campus programs in summer 2022, we are bound by university and government health rules. If on-campus events are prohibited, registrants will have the option to receive a full refund or participate in an online version of the program with a partial refund.
